Notes 
 Bumgarner's ERA approached 4.00 last year, but he stayed healthy all year and saw a velocity bump after two injury-plagued years. The move to Arizona is a downgrade considering the park change, but it's not quite as drastic as it would have been without the humidor. Still, Bumgarner's numbers were significantly worse away from Oracle Park last year (2.93 ERA at home, 5.29 away), so it's fair to exercise caution with Bumgarner. But, so long as you recognize him for what he is at this point in his career, he'll likely give you what you expect.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Gallen was so absurdly dominant in Triple-A in 2019 that his MLB performance, while highly impressive, felt slightly disappointing. But his fastball, curveball, and changeup were all plus pitches in the majors, and there's every reason to expect him to continue to grow as a pitcher. There's somehow some question mark around his rotation spot, but cream usually rises to the top, and he should not only be one of the Diamondbacks' five starters, but he should excel. Expect excellent overall numbers and draft him accordingly.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  With innings come strikeouts for Gallen and 2020 is the year he pitches more of them and becomes a relevant Fantasy SP. He is a steal currently and Fantasy owners need to load up on their shares.
